Lovely bar with beautiful lighting - perfect for a first date. Attentive service and a menu with plenty of variety. Great dirty martini too. Will be back.
Always a great spot with excellent service, ambiance and food.
Awesome food and great atmosphere. Staff were really helpful with wine selection too!
The food was absolutely awful, especially the orecchiette and mussels, which were totally unedible. The menu is inaccurate and I was not served what i ordered and expected to get. The saganaki was bland and disappointing. Yes it's a lovely looking place filled with glamorous looking people. But the quality and taste of the food was poor and not what I expected to be served in a classy restaurant. While the service was good and the cocktails were fine, the food and beverage staff did not question how the meals were or why the orecchiette and mussels were left uneaten. I regret paying the $200 bill, I should have just stayed home and had a sandwich.
Sunday lunch with 2 starters & 2 seconds & 2 glasses of wine each with endless sparkling water. Ample food for 2 - delicious too. Attentive service & quiet. Sat by the open street window & watched the world go by. It was recommended to me, I recommend it to you.
We had an 8:30 booking yet didn’t get seated til 9, then ordered but our food didn’t arrive until 10:15pm... way too late. Food was delicious though
Refer to the email i sent through Friday night poor service
What a shame Neptune turned out to be. Beautiful venue shame about the service and lack lustre food.
Waiting about 7 mins to be acknowledged even with several staff walking past us and even whilst stood next to a staff member who wasn’t in the slightest bit interested to even ask about our booking. Then was told that the manager would be out soon, another 5 mins- even though we had a booking.
Staff seem disinterested and like waiting on their customers was an annoyance rather than their job.
All of this could have been forgiven if the food was decent. Sadly it wasn’t. Fresh ingredients, but lacking in seasoning and bland.
The only positive point was the barman who did mix up a great cocktail.
Won’t be back
Please do try simple short menu but FAB
happy hour good value and staff great
Had a lovely work dinner here, the Spanner crab pasta is amazing along with some great wines to choose from.
It was a really nice venue and the service was great. Unfortunately I ordered the risotto dish which was extremely salty and not much other flavour. I usually don’t leave anything on the plate but I couldn’t finish this dish as I didn’t enjoy it at all. I think the recipe needs to be changed.
Lovely Sunday lunch. Lovely decor and delicious food. Attentive and friendly staff
Wonderful venue, food, wine! We had such a great time.
Great environment, friendly staff and delicious food!
It was a quiet night (Sunday) and we felt it to be a little obvious that our initial waiter was pushing us to order more as a way of us spending more and we did not appreciate this. Also a minute after being offered another alcoholic drink and saying no, another waiter came to ask the same question. This can happen but overall we had waiters around a little too much.
Loved the food and ambiance and enjoyed otherwise
Beautiful restaurant with a great ambience. The staff were very attentive and friendly. We ordered several entrees, mains and wine and it was all reasonably priced. Criticisms: we got our mains pretty late (around 10pm) and the noise levels were very high so we we’re all shouting at each other in conversation. Also the pastas we ordered were very rich and oily. I recommend just getting either mains or entrees not both. This place is nice for a group catch up but wouldn’t come here for a date because it’s so loud. The ambience more suitable as a bar rather than a restaurant.
First time visiting Neptune and it was fantastic. The service was great and our waitress was so attentive and funny. The eggplant dish was the highlight of the night followed by the two young ladies next to us taking selfies every 3 seconds of themselves and their food which made for amazing entertainment. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting some great food and wine!
I had a lovely dinner at Neptune with my wife last Saturday night. While we had an early (6.30pm) sitting, the restaurant/bar was buzzing when we arrived. The food was delicious as were the cocktails and wine. Definitely a glamorous crowd who were there for a fun night. Service was prompt and friendly! We will definitely be coming back!!!
Favorite local date night, thanks for taking care of us!
Unfortunately a really disappointing night for us. We had heard excellent things from friends who had been before but were really let down by our experience.
It took over half an hour for the wait staff to take our order and a a further 45 minutes before any food arrived. We had an 8.30 booking, so our mains did not arrive until after 10pm.
I also noticed the wait staff mistakenly dropped our mains off at the table behind us, before realising and bringing the food over to us. Whilst the other table had not touched the food it was a little off putting given the circumstances at the moment.
The food was okay but unfortunately quite cold by the time it arrived. Very hard to get staff’s attention which was strange considering the venue did not appear to be very busy.
Underwhelmed and won’t hurry back
Love this place!
Enjoyed the food but a little disappointed at the limited menu. Having said that, our meals were very tasty and enjoyable.
Amazing food and well priced menu, wines are pricy by the bottle. Great vegan options, doesn’t feel as though it’s just reductive.
Great wine, great food, great service!
Definitely recommend this spot and will be back soon again!
Great food, beautiful surrounds
Definitely go there again
It wasn’t very busy but the waiter forgot to bring our drinks.
A fairly long wait for our main pasta dish because they decided to bring ours out with the customer on the table next to us who had ordered 10 minutes later, so ours were both cold
Super yummy food. Share style. Highly recommend for date night or catch-up with friends. The wine is absolutely amazing.
The starters were okay but the main pasta dish was horrible and we had to send two of them back
Acoustics aren’t great and so we pretty much ate and left because we couldn’t hear anything over the loud, drunk group next to us.
Neptune has a great space where you can sit and watch the world go by with a glass of wine it’s so lovely! Also the drinks are great!
Great service. Thorough explanations for celiac gluten free options!!
Great atmosphere and food. Will be back 👍
Service was chaotic. We were seated for 30mins before we even got a drinks menu. I had to physically call over a waitress to beg for them to please give us a drinks menu. They then forgot to give us a food menu and it was on from there...
It’s my second visit before lockdown was the first and is now my new fav local . Beautifully presented food
Great vibe love the option for a late night dine if you’re working etc 😊 happy days
Just limited due to covid seating. Would have preferred a both got better ambiance
Had a small work party here and the food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect for a small gathering.
By far the best wine bar, dining and hospitality on the south side of Melbourne.
A fabulous find...amazing ambience, excellent wines and gorgeous food. Will be back!
Food absolutely amazing! A fantastic atmosphere and friendly service.
Such a great spot for a drink and a bite with friends or for date night. The food is always fresh and delicious and the wine selection is top notch.
